As President of the i.am.angel Foundation, will.i.am will deliver a live introduction about the TRANS4M movement and mission from his studio in Hollywood.

"Midem is the ideal event to introduce TRANS4M to the global music industry as it brings together the brightest minds and most important decision-makers.  Leaders in the music business are in a unique position to drive positive change within the industry and beyond among music fans around the globe," commented will.i.am.

Moderating the curated TRANS4M panel in Cannes will be Ken Hertz, Senior Partner of media law firm Hertz Lichtenstein & Young LLP, who is also Co-Founder and Founding Principal of global branding and licensing agency, memBrain llc.
